Simulating the magnetized linear inertial fusion plasma confinement with smaller-scale experiments
D.D. Ryutov, M.E. Cuneo, M.C. Herrmann, D.B. Sinars, and S.A. Slutz
The magnetized linear inertial fusion (MagLIF) concept has recently been identified as an approach to a Z-pinch driven fusion that uses an axial magnetic field to provide plasma thermal insulation from the walls of the imploding liner. The characteristic time-scales for this method will lie in between the time-scales typical for magnetic confinement fusion and inertial confinement fusion. Results are given that identifies the necessary parameters for smaller-scale experiments to be able to provide answers to the question of plasma confinement times.

Tuning the electron energy by controlling the density perturbation position in laser plasma accelerators
P. Brijesh, C. Thaury, K.T. Phuoc, S. Corde, G. Lambert, V. Malka, S.P.D. Mangles, M. Bloom, and S. Kneip
Quasi-monoenergetic electrons are used to induce controlled injection of electrons into the laser-generated plasma wakefield. Tuning the position of the density perturbation along the laser propagation axis gives control over the electron energy.

Kinetic damping of resistive wall modes in ITER
I.T. Chapman, Y.Q. Liu, O. Asunta, J.P. Graves, T. Johnson, and M. Jucker
Guiding-centre drift kinetic code is used to analyse the effect of the thermal ions, the alpha particles, and also the contribution of energetic ions arising from neutral beam injection (NBI) or ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) on the stability of the resistive wall mode (RWM) while retaining finite orbit width effects throughout. Results show that the inclusion of kinetic damping from the thermal ions results in an increase in the stability limit for RWMs.
